Take a look at the October 3, 1998 issue of The Economist.  There is
an article on page 93 (US version) about the potential for some new
chip-making techniques from Irvine Sensors Corporation in Costa Mesa,
California.  Their long-term goal is to stack 1,000 neural chips in a
single cube with each layer containing 1,000 silicon neurons.
